Use the number line to
subtract. 13 subtract five equals what. Hint: Subtract to make 10
In this question, we have to
subtract five from the number 13 and we have to subtract to 10 first. What did we have to subtract from
13 to take us to number 10? 13 take away three equals 10. We’re subtracting five. We’ve already subtracted three. How much more do we need to
subtract? We know that three and two makes
five, so we need to subtract two more. 10 subtract two equals eight. 13 subtract five equals eight. First, we subtracted three to make
10. Then we subtracted two more.
